Of all your brilliant Tolkien work, this felt the most Tolkien to me. Your portrayal of Oropher's old wounds rang so true. He was very, very much Thingol's heir in spirit there, and, even if understandable, not in the most admirable way ("A plague on the stiff necks of the Elves!" ). Your descriptions of Greenwood thrilled me to bits! I love how pithy and succinct and yet very apt the comparisons you drew with Lorien and Fangorn are. I can only dream of such precision! Can I also say that your Tree Mother has got to be one of the most awesome fanon creations I have ever come across? And she is also utterly Tolkien. She just fits so well into what I perceive his obsessions with trees and European mythology to be, heh. I suppose she is intentionally modelled on Yggdrasil? In any case, I think he'd love her, so well done, you! I hope she's featured in later instalments, or maybe This Taste of Shadow.
